. >> deserving or not senate majority leader harry reid who enjoys a "b" rating from the nra seems to have decideed already which of the president's proposals have the best chance to become law. reid indicated on the abcs "this week" that at least two of those proposals had a chance. >> i think we need to take a look at the federal trafficking i think that everyone acknowledges that we should do something about background checks. >> john: but sought weapons? >> i'll take a look at it. >> john: someone is working on their "a" rating from the nra. and the majority leader seemed less interested in a ten-round limit for ammunition clips. >> i think that's something that we definitely have to take a look at. >> take a look or vote for? >> well, let's see what it is. let's see what it is. >> john: in case someone in the senate doesn't know what it is. what it is or seems to be the democratic senate leader running for cover when pressed to do something about guns. on two other big issues reid seems employeer confident that an immigration bill would pass, and the majority leader also told abc that
thinks senate majority leader harry reid needs to get to work on guns. >>> the boy scouts are getting ready to end their policy of discrimination against gays, and the president is standing with them. >> should scouting be open to gays? >> yes. >> i'll tell you how conservatives are fighting the process. the. >>> it's the super bowl commercial everybody is talking about. >> god looked down on his planned paradise and said i need a caretaker. so god made a farmer. >> god created the family farmer. i'll tell you how republicans are destroying them. all that plus e.j. dionne, karen finney and jonathan alter on why conservatives are actually trying to blame the super bowl blackout on the president. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching there is a major development on gun legislation today, but there is a good chance you haven't heard about it. president obama continued the push for common sense gun reform today in minneapolis. he was surrounded by law enforcement officers with the city and the state. the president asked americans to stand with the men and women in t
that there is a director of the atf might solve a little bit of that problem. let's move on to harry reid because harry reid has been asked about gun patrol. control. he has been asked by george stephanopoulos. and here's what he had to say about it. >> would you vote for it? >> i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> now here is the important thing to remember about harry reid. he's facing a little bit of a conundrum because there is what is good for the country and what his constituents in nevada wants. and of course in nevada they're very much pro gun. and he is very much pro gun himself. it is very unlikely that he's well to support an assault weapons ban. but he was also talking about background checks. let's hear what he said about that. >> everyone acknowledged that we should have universal background checks. i support the second amendment but you can do things like that. >> michael, what are your thoughts. do you think harry reid will take the lead on gun control? >> i don't think he'll take the lead, but he's the smartest poli
. harry reid wants to go after oil and gas companies and lord knows what. that kind of tax carpet bombing would generate a correction in the market. the market absorbed the last tax hike okay. but we don't want to push our luck, it seems to me. >> i think we're pushing our luck already. the market has yet to wake up to the reality of the last tax hike. the problem is obama puts the threats out because this is his way of premeg nating with republicans who are going to come to him in the debate about the sequesters and continuing resolution. obama is saying, don't even talk to me about entitlement reforms. if you oh mention those words it will be tax, tax, tax. i will control the public dialogue and that's all we'll e talk about. guys, fold your cards now. that's what this is about. i don't think there will be more tax hikes this year. there's also not going to be spending reform. all the talk about tax hikes is obama's way of making sure that america doesn't deal with its true problem which is its spending problem. >> i will cross that bridge when i get to it. dave goldman, this didn't hav
, a relatively new blogger on the basis of a 16-year-old. >> there's people who support him. listen to harry reid. >> i have the utmost confidence in him. as to the rest of the investigation, that will have to be handled the way they are, in-depth. the ethics committee are looking at it. >> there's relatively serious allegations. are you confident he did nothing wrong? >> i have confidence he did nothing wrong but that's what investigation are about. >> later on, if it turns out the investigation turns out to say the allegations are true, he can say i did have confidence and i had every reason to be and i'm so disappointed. >> even rolling footage of harry reid. he's the senate majority leader but he said i had on good information mitt romney did. >> are you rolling tape about prostitutes. >>> does harry reid understand what menendez is accused of? looks like the last dalliance might have been during the true man administration. >> he's also from nevada. >> what do you mean by that? >> did it bother you -- >> the question is, is it legal in the united states. >> thank you for that. >> life would
passed? >> well, first of all, he needs to call harry reid in to his office and say get with the program, pal. i mean, harry reid not to use a bad analogy but sort of shot it down. and harry reid comes from a gun state, comes from that background. he's been hit or miss on this in the past. if you don't have strong support from the leaders of the democrats in congress, how do you expect to get anything sweeping enacted? talking to people today, even the whole notion of expanding background checks and making them universal, the phrase universal background checks has now become a word of fear and a term of art among conservatives and the gun supporters who fear it's about registering, if you sell your something to the guy across the road that that's going to be require registry and you get the black helicopters flying within seconds there. i'm not even sure that in the end is going to get enacted. it is a sad, sad commentary on where this issue is. it's the ultimate conflict between targeted inside money power and the presumed views of all the american people. 90% of the american people in
a nationwide gun registry, but there are positive signs for majority leader in the senate harry reid and from judiciary chair pat leahy. when it comes to assault ban doing away with assault bans, that doesn't seem to be in very good shape. vice president biden who led the discussion says his major priority is clips and magazines limiting the amount of each. that, too is not very favorable. so when you talk about the whole gamut, it seems that background checks and especially that loophole in gun shows stands the best chance. >> is it lost on anyone in this debate that a background check wouldn't have stopped newtown? the kid got his guns from his mom. >> well, people feel that, of course, there will be exceptions, but as the president said and i think rightly so, that if they can cut in any way the chances of something happening, it's never going to be 100% foolproof. they're going to try to make an attempt. they want to produce some legislation, brian, that changes the dynamic. >> now is senate majority leader harry reid from a pro gun state going to be an effective leader on this? >> well,
aid to majority leader harry reid told the "wall street journal" that the bill will not include a ban on military style weapons. members continue to vilify efforts at increasing gun safety in a way that only they can. >> they demonize people who are legal gun owners and obama, oh, look at hem. he cares about the children. screw you. you think we don't care about the children? you're the one who won't do anything about the mentally ill. >> 99.99% of the gun owners of america are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today. would you leave us the hell alone? go after the nut jobs. go after the murderers because i don't know any. >> joy, let's talk about this. when you lead in with ted nugent and ann coulter -- >> doesn't get much better. >> always so much to talk about. insofar as we need to come together to get anything enacted. it does seem like the republican party or those in the conservative wing of the republican party have dug their heels in in a firm fashion. >> right. >> gin that, what did you make of the president's, we'll call it, push on the assault weapons
bill. they passed it. harry reid never even tack it up and the president didn't acknowledge it. but there are good ways to fix this problem without gutting our military. but we can't good back to where we were, where we're just adding all this spending back, along with the president's tax increases. >> you're saying basically the republicans should say, no, we're not going to do this, no more taxes? >> absolutely not. stewart. i'm not going to speak for the republicans anymore. but just speaking as a conservative, we have to get the president and the congress focused on, how can we cut spending and put ourself on a path to a balanced budget. if we don't start talking about a balanced budget and getting serious about it, you know what's going to happen and this movie will not end well. >> the congressional budget of office today protected the state of the economy. they said two things. number one, the deficit this year is going to come in lower trim dollars, the first time in the obama years. and they also said we're only goal going to great growth of 1.4%. they're saying if you
's comments come one day after majority leader harry reid said that he wants to get something done on guns. just what the pro-democrat means is up for interpretation. it may add up to nothing at all politically. mike emanuel has our report. >> president obama went to minneapolis hoping to build support for what he believes are common sense proposals to reduce gun violence. he chose minneapolis to spotlight steps it has taken. >> the city came together. we've launched a series of initiatives that have reduced the number of young people injured by guns by 40%. reporter: mr. obama asked the american people to take action. >> we do not have to agree on everything to agree that it is time to do something. the vast majority of americans, including a majority of gun owners, support requiring criminal background checks for anyone trying to purchase a gun. reporter: to the nra says it will turn into a registry of law-abiding people. >> it will never be universal. the criminals will not comply with it. they could care less. reporter: this super bowl ad, in part funded by michael bloomberg, goes afte
. great to have you here. i need to get you to comment on to harry reid. this weekend talking about more taxes. he says, the american people are on his side. here he is. >> the american people don't believe in this bustier things. we believe that he rich should contribute. we believe we should fill those tax loopholes, get rid of them, i should say, and t that is whee we need to go. gerri: do you agree? >> no, i don't. john kennedy did not agree. ronald reagan did not agree. they did not agree back in the 1920's. it is never worked in the history of this country raising taxes to bring in more revenue. by the way, the revenue is projected for this year, over two and half trillion dollars. that's more than we took in last year, more than we took in in 2007 and 2008. it is always and has always been a spending problem in washington d.c. look at what is going on in california. wall street loves what california is doing, but remember, the people who voted to raise taxes in california made it retroactive, so what happened is nobody could do anything tget away from the extra increase in taxes,
agenda than he has been using for other parts of the bill. that could be if senator harry reid's argument -- that is essentially dead on arrival anyway. >> if diane feinstein doesn't have the assault weapons at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> i don't know, frankly -- and she knows i didn't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense, but i'll take a look at it. >> joining me now to take a look at it. editor for the new republic, good to see you, my friend. >> thanks for having me on the show, ezra. >> so that didn't sound enormously encouraging from harry reid, kind of sounded like the assault weapons ban will get a bit of a pro forma vote and that is about it. >> i think everybody knew going into the fight the different elements of the gun legislation agenda, that the assault weapons ban would be one that had the hardest road ahead. in part because you know you still need 60 votes to pass anything in the senate. and in part because the republicans control the house. and in part bec
slammed harry reid for saying he hadn't read dianne feinstein's bill banning assault weapons. >> how can harry reid, a fellow democrat, and i'm willing to criticize him, say he hasn't read the bill. this is an emergency. let's knock off the washington baloney and support the president and get some things done. >> the white house wants to overload washington's political circuits. an effort to see what it can get through congress without letting congress and particularly congressional republicans, define what issues get addressed. republican leaders are making it clear they prefer to talk about just one thing before the march budget shutdown. >> this was supposed to be the day that the president submitted his budget to the congress. but it's not coming. i think that's too bad. our economy could use some presidential leadership right now. >> and top senate republican mitch mcconnell was just as eager to talk budget hitting the floor to slam democrats for floating new revenue proposals. >> this is just another opportunity to trot out the democrat focus group approved policy stunt. if this is
and the senate? caller: harry reid of nevada is a gun owner, democratic leader. mitch mcconnell of kentucky, as i recall. we did not get an answer at all from john boehner, the house speaker. nancy pelosi does not own a gun. host: what about the chairman of the house judiciary and senate judiciary committees? the legislation is going to go to them. host: that is -- caller: that is one of the most interesting ones. senator leahy is a gun owner, but he is also a very strong advocate for gun control. he will be delivering one of the key points in the debate. their committees are likely to be the first out the door with legislation. there will be interesting things coming from some unlikely he, coming from vermont, who lives in a state where gun ownership is not all that unusual. it will be interesting to see if he can thread the needle between a healthy respect for guns and a healthy concern for guns and gun safety. i think that he will be a very interesting player to watch. host: let me conclude by asking how you interpreted the president's remarks yesterday in minneapolis. what does that mean for
with their party like harry reid, and others, they are mentally ill. but a lot of serial killers and psycho path have a high intellect and aren't considered mentally ill. and i am tired of being a scapegoat. >> stephanie: i don't know that harry reid is mentally ill. he might be a bit of a weanny. but last night i saw him say, i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense. >> i didn't vote for it last time because it didn't make sense. >> it worked. >> stephanie: yeah what do you mean it didn't make sense. i wish they would have asked him to elaborate on that. >> yes, follow up question maybe >> stephanie: bob in indiana. hi, bob. >> caller: hi there. my issue has to do with -- couple of them actually. first of all gun control. i know you have to start somewhere, but with 300 million guns out there it is like barring the door after the horse is gone, don't you think? >> stephanie: then what do we do then? >> caller: i think it's more of a cultural issue. >> stephanie: do you mean? >> caller: we are a violent culture from the top to the bottom, do

. if we do not do something today -- not as harry reid said, there is a problem with entitlement reform, and we can wait 20 years. that problem it's today. -- it's today. we need to address this immediately and both sides need to come to theable, and we are waiting for the white house to get there. host: we will be covering that announcement from the cpl on c- span two at 2:00 p.m. eastern time. there it is on screen. let me ask you about the house. "the washington times" reports president obama missed the deadline for the fourth time on the budget. the house is going forward with the plan act. can you explain what that is and are there enough votes to pass it? guest: all it says is the house of representatives hasone its job, actually passing a budget and we did a bill one week ago saying that if the senate does not pass a bill, a do not get paid. that is pressure on the senate. we cannot stop the president from being paid, though we are passing a bill that says he should present a budget that actually balances in a reasonable time, how about 10 years -- last term i was on the budget c
